  4. 4. <ul><li>A traditional custom at this time was to wear a red rose in one's lapel , though with changes in fashion this is no longer common. Another custom is to fly or adorn the St George's Cross flag in some way: pubs in particular can be seen on April 23 festooned with garlands of St George's crosses. However, the modern association of the St George's Cross with sports such as football , cricket and rugby means that this tradition is rare outside this context.

  7. 7. Dragon history The story is that a dragon makes its nest in the source that provides water to a city. As a result, citizens had to remove the dragon daily source for water. So each day a human sacrifice offered to be decided at random from the population. One day the princess was selected. In some stories featured the king, his father, asking for his daughter's life, but without success. When I was about to be devoured by the dragon, Jorge appears in one of his trips, he faces the dragon, kills him and saves the princess. The story of George and the dragon has many common elements with the ancient Greek myth of the Ethiopian princess Andromeda and her rescuer and later husband Perseus, the conqueror of the Gorgon Medusa. In both cases there is a dragon with his beheading, a princess and a reward in a case of marriage, on the other the conversion of the city. Some of the legends about George and the Dragon put the action in Libya, that is, action in both cases is in distant realms.
